Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

35. Almighty God, thy pow'rful word

1 Almighty God, thy pow'rful word
From nothing all things brought;
Earth seas, and skies, by thee their Lord,
With skill divine were wrought.

2 Thy pleasure heav'nly hosts fulfil;
For thee each planet rolls:
Earth, sun, and stars perform thy will;
Thy nod the world controls.

3 Thou over all art Lord supreme;
All else from the derive.
No being can dispute thy claim,
Or independent live.

4 To thee, our Lord, we therefore bow;
To thee, our all resign.
Entire to thee ourselves we vow,
For we are wholly thine.
